van persie is not a muslim, he just married one. to quote him

Quote:
That’s not true. I am not a Muslim nor a Christian, nor Jew. I have bred freely. If you want to be a Muslim, it must come from the heart… I believe in myself. I would not [convert to Islam] just to please my wife.

like most euros he is agnostic or an atheist

Most people who identify themselves as any religion don't practice what their good books preach. Hell, most of them have never read a page of the bible/quran/etc.

Default Re: People you didnt know were Muslim

I feel like most of the rappers that identify with Islam or are drawn to it because it's sort of an "alternative" religion in America but it still is spiritual and otherworldly. Artistic personalities tend to be kind of all over the place at times in their life, thus seeking meaning in a monotheistic philosophy or simplistic beauty in spiritual practices.

These same artists still probably don't feel as comfortable holding up the American version of Christianity. They have probably felt it to be more of the white race's go to spiritual affiliation and thus the foundation of a lot of people they see historically as oppressors.

For those reasons, those particular individuals gravitate towards Islam because it is more of a minority and they have felt the struggles (real or imagined) of being a minority instead of it being a family passed down kind of inheritance.

Awesome religion

The bible says any person caught committing adultery should be put to death. It also commands that rape victims marry their attacker (and he has to pay 50 silver sheckels to her father).

Both books were written in the dark ages by people who didn't know where the Sun went at night. What do you expect?

Old Testament. That is the teaching and ways lived by the people of that time. Christians in this day and age do not follow the barbaric rules of the old testament and follow the New testament which is why you don't see the extreme dark age shit you do with the Muslims.

The bible teaches love and acceptance which for the most part is carried out by most christians throughout the world(no beheadings or calling people to their religion or die) or severe oppression of women.

The Quran teaches everyone opposed to their religion are infidels.

So let me get this straight. Your Christian, but since the bible was a bit too much in your opinion, you guys just decided to change it to suit you, right?

Thats one thing I never understood about Christians. Christianity is stupid and your an idiot for talking about Islam while being a Christian yourself. Talk about pot calling the kettle black.
